Best Sleeping Buds

Walked into the living room to this:

I guess the two youngest members of the household are friends.

Nick Loves Trixie

I’ve been trying for a few weeks to get video of their antics, but it’s been difficult. When I go outside they all head over to me to see if I have treats or something. This is the best I could do and is just a small sample of what’s been happening in the backyard as spring has sprung.

I’m not sure how to break the facts to Nick, but for now am letting him enjoy his spring-fling.

My theory is, much like with Mabel and Maddie with Jake – who happened to take his new found ability to go outside as an opportunity to spray the fence line (he was neutered, but that doesn’t seem to limit pheromones for some) and the ducks took that as a sign he was the perfect male to crush on.  Poor Jake…

At 5 months, Trixie’s hormones are kicking in and this seems to have triggered Nick’s crush.

I do keep a good eye out on them because Trixie is, after all, a clumsy 5 month old with huge paws.

It’s calmed down a bit this week as the weather warmed, so maybe we are past the craziest part of it.

Time Flies

Not sure how I’m feeling about the 5-month milestone. She’s such a sweetie and growing so fast. I’m a little wistful on how quickly it has flown by.

Walking today, in her harness, I could not get over how big she was and how much she now looks like the Great Dane she’s going to be.  Sunday I walked both dogs at the same time and she did great. Scout was a little crazed, but we hadn’t had a walk in almost a week due to ice and snow.

I’ll do that once a week to get them used to it, but I have really been enjoying my alone time with each pup on our walks. And two walks for me is never a bad thing…I mean more cookies, right?

We have now reached the “can’t see the Panda” when she sits on him. I don’t know what she weighs, I’m guessing about 60 lbs – I’ll try to get to the vet and weigh this week.
